Seoul — The press conference for the upcoming Netflix special episode Kingdom: Ashin of the North starring Jun Ji Hyun was held online on July 20.

Writer Kim Eun Hee stated,”Could there possibly be another actress who is more suitable than Jun Ji Hyun, in Ashin? I am a big fan of Jun Ji Hyun and I always thought she was an actress with a wide spectrum. Jun Ji Hyun, who is also known as the queen of romantic comedy, played a dark and pained character in ‘Ashin of the North’, and it was cool. Ashin keeps her pain close, but I wanted her to look like a warrior who looked strong and dangerous on the outside.” Kim Eun Hee also expressed her gratitude toward Jun Ji Hyun for accepting her role offer, and said, “I wrote [the script] with Jun Ji Hyun in mind, but I was worried that she wouldn’t agree to appear.”
